I've been asked to coordinate another ride in the wine country hills.
I mapped out this route which should be very nice for the fall color of the grape vines, the salamanders on Ink Grade and fewer goobers (uh, boat traffic) by Lake Berryessa --about 54 miles and the actual climbing will probably be about 4,000. Our core group is about average club pace - some faster on the climbs and some faster on the descents. We all get there together.
Goobers and Grapes -- www.routeslip.com/map.php?map=12207
Parking: Library and Adams St east of Main St in St. Helena. Both are dead end streets and recommended by both the Police Dept traffic person and the St. Helena Cyclery.
We'll find chow in St. Helena. There are always a lot of votes for Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen but suggestions are always welcome.
9:30 am on your bike start - rain cancels (OK, we're a bunch of fragile flowers, you can say it).
Edited Friday at 4:19 pm - Weather looks fine. We're on!
Let me know if we should expect you.
Amici Veloci began when a group of Calif women participating in a women's cycling forum formed a team for a charity ride. Our team grew to include our ride buddies, male and female, roadies and dirt riders, across the USA. Though some of us have never met we've become good friends and ride together whenever we can. This blog is to keep all our members up to date on our happenings as well as sightings of our tattoo and jersey. Read below for our shared adventures and maybe a recipe or two.
